Covid: Hackney Railway Arch Rave Attended By ‘300 People’

The title of this post, is the same as that of this article on the BBC.

This is the introductory paragraphs.

Police have issued more than £15,000 in fines after 300 people attended an illegal rave in a railway arch.

Officers raided an unlicensed music event in Nursery Road, Hackney, at 01.30 GMT on Sunday.

Sounds to me, that the safest way to handle this number of ravers, is to use a water cannon, firing smart water, so they can be identified for a couple of weeks.

Covid-19: Two £10,000 Fines For ‘150-Person’ Funeral

The title of this post, is the same as that of this article on the BBC.

This is the introductory paragraph.

A funeral director has been fined £10,000 after police were called to a funeral with close to 150 people in attendance.

This time, it appears that the covidiots were Roman Catholics.

Covid: 400-Person Wedding Party In Stamford Hill Broken Up By Police

The title of this post, is the same as that of this article on the BBC,

I would have thought, that the organisers would have known better, as the Jewish community in Stamford Hill has suffered badly from th covids.

In Jews In The UK And COVID-19, which I wrote in May 2020, I did a simple analysis and said this.

From these simple figures Jews are over three times more likely to die of COVID-19, than the general population.

Walk around the area and their are signs up in Hebrew telling people to Stay Safe.

How can people be so stupid?

But that’s religion for you!

A Measles Epidemic

About a year ago, I was asked by my GP, if I had been vaccinated against measles.

I said no, but I have did have a bad case at about twenty-five, which I recounted in A Surprising Question From A Doctor.

He said fine and then added that there’s a measles epidemic in the North of the borough.

Apparently, the ultra-Orthodox Jews don’t have a high level of vaccination and a lot of children.

This worries me, as will they bother to get the vaccine for the covids.

They should listen to the eminently sensible Chief Rabbi.

How Do We Protect Ourselves From Covidiots Like These?

I had to laugh when I heard this story on the BBC!

They gave a summary on Radio 5 of this story from Reuters, which is entitled London Police Irritated By Makeshift Nightclub In Barbershop Basement.

But I do suspect, that the Soho police were a lot more than irritated.

I certainly am furious at such irresponsible behaviour!

Bristol Illegal Rave Attended By 700 People

The title of this post, is the same as that of this article on the BBC.

This is the sub-title.

Police say they were attacked as they tried to break up an illegal rave at a warehouse near Bristol.

Let’s hope it gives lots of work for criminal defence solicitors.

Greater Manchester Illegal Raves: Man Dies, Woman Raped And Three Stabbed

The title of this post, is the same as that of this article on the BBC.

This is the introductory paragraph.

A 20-year-old man has died, a woman has been raped and three people have been stabbed during two illegal “quarantine raves” that attracted 6,000 people.

What the hell was going on?

There have been some exuberant parties in Hackney Marshes, but they didn’t appear to be the on the scale of the Mancunian troubles.

Last night on Stephen Nolan’s program, there was some very heated debate on what went on in Manchester. Some, who had been present, should have been arrested, if what they alleged they’d done was true.

If you look at total COVID-19 cases in London and the North West on June 15th, they are as follows.

  • London 27, 330 – 306.8
  • North-West 26,759 – 367

The second figure is a rate per 100,000 of the population. Although the Government data doesn’t give the legend on the chart! Poor presentation again from the Government statisticians!

I have been on public transport a lot in London and the behaviour of passengers seems to follow the rules. Especially, on the Overground, which seems to be busier than the buses and the Underground. Today on a trip out, everybody I saw on public transport was masked!

Piers Corbyn Among Those Held In Coronavirus Lockdown Protests

The title of this post, is the same as that of this article in The Guardian.

This is the introductory paragraph.

The brother of the former Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn was one of several protesters arrested on Saturday, as small demonstrations against the coronavirus lockdown took place across the country.

And this paragraph describes what he was saying and doing.

Corbyn’s brother, Piers, was taken away after using a megaphone to declare that 5G and the coronavirus pandemic were linked and branding the pandemic as a “pack of lies to brainwash you and keep you in order”. He also disputed the need for a vaccination.

According to his Wikipedia entry, he denies the existence of climate change. He must have interesting discussions with his brother, if this report on the BBC is to be believed.

Birthday Parties And Weddings Among Most Risky Coronavirus ‘Super‑Spreader’ Events

The title of this post is the same as this article in The Sunday Times.

This is the introductory paragraph.

The party could be over for a while. Scientists have found that family celebrations such as birthdays and weddings, and gatherings of similar size, are among the deadliest ways to spread Covid-19. Indoor gatherings of 10 to 30 people allow one person carrying the virus to infect up to 10 others.

I doubt we’ll have gatherings of people, until we are all vaccinated.

Greater Manchester Police Warning After 660 Parties Shut Down

The title of this post, is the same as that of this article on the BBC.

This is the introductory paragraph.

Greater Manchester Police has warned people not to breach lockdown rules over Easter after it had to break up 660 parties last weekend.

This was also reported.

  • There were 1,132 coronavirus-related breaches reported between Saturday and Tuesday.
  • Some of the 494 house parties had DJs, fireworks and bouncy castles.
  • There were also 166 street parties.
  • One woman in Bury was arrested.

The force also had to deal with 122 different groups gathering to play sports, 173 more gatherings in parks and 112 incidents of anti-social behaviour and public disorder.

There have been some similar reports in London, but not on this scale.

So why is it, that Manchester disobeyed the rules so much?

Is it because the BBC is in Manchester and it’s easy to report?
